8:24 am
you gave me half your scholarship money, i can go buy the car we all want and it will be like it is all of ours but i keep it at my house mpt i thank you for your dedication and hard work on being deserving of receiving the scholarship this evening. just going to say 3 quick things, young, never be content with average because it is as close to the bottom as the top. to give more perspective, always remember a c is just as close to a f as it is to a a. a c is just as close to a f as a a so always strive for a's in life for everything you do. remember that. secondly, always focus on persevering and never let anyone tell you you can't do anything and be successful. you should have 124 perseverance of a insect that all us may see and know but may
8:25 am
not realize how strong they are and how much they persevere and that sh bumblebee rr. the reason i say that is a bumblebee isn't supposed to be able to fly. you go and tell a bumblebee that. you see them flying traev/7 non stop because of weight and their wings they are not suppose today be able to fly and yet they still fly. any time someone says you can't succeed or be successful just remember the bumblebee defying the odds. last, and this is something i always want you to keep at heart is always know where you want to go. whether you set a 3 month goal or 6 goal or year worth of goals, always know where you want to go so you remember the childrens story alice in wonder
8:26 am
land and alice is talk toog the ches shire cat and they have a exchange and she asks the cat for direction jz the cat says, where do you want to go and she says, i don't know. the cat said, well then it doesn't matter. always know where you want to go because that is the only way you get roadmap to success and where you want to end up with. i have the honor and privilege to introduce the leader of our city and by the way, this is a leader who had to be in charge and had to make strong decisions during challenging time. he is also a leader who spenz the most time that i have seen in bayview hunters point in many years so appreciate him for that. he is also a mayor who focuses on making sure that we are not device v and all work together to get things accomplish. if you look what is happening across the country and even in the city, it is very important
8:27 am
now that we focus on strategies and working together. he is a leader in affordable housing, he is a leader in reforms needed for our communities to be successful so all of us have equal opportunities and he has been a leader in social justice and equity. i want to thank him one, for his work and leadership through the challenging time. i want to thank him pr being here for the young people all the time including this evening and without further ado, here is our mayor, mayor ed lee. [applause] >> thank you for that introduction shmon and thank you for your wonderful work at the school board. i know that the more people from the community that get on to our elected body will really help and i know the school board is doing well. we are because of you and hid ruand all the other
8:28 am
school board members and richards leadership we are the best performing urban public school in the state of california so thank you very much for that leadership. [applause] allison, thank you and we are proud of our sf state as well and want to thank omar, thank you for inviting us to this beautiful place and before i begood in , let me share good news with everybody. we just learned that we won the lawsuit filed against the warriors arena so now we'll start building the arena and start moving forward on a wonderful opportunity have this team come back to san francisco as they left a few years ago and played wonderful city of oakland and maybe we can win a few
8:29 am
championships as well. wanted to share that with you because as i talked about the warriors being success i'm looking at success with our scholar squz very proud. very proud of all you because not only have you done it academically-i went through all your backgrounds and and i know there are a lot of other challenges you had to overcome in order to get into a position where you could succeed even more. i know too that most of you will be the first in your family to attend college and that means a lot of other people in your family will depend upon you to be successful and to kind of paint the way for them to be their success. i am extraordinarily moved by each and ever one of your stories mpt i too was a recipient of a few scholarships
8:30 am
when i went to college. i don't think i would have been able to attend had schools i was privileged to go to without those scholarships. whether they were at private college or uc berkeley. those scholarships were a huge advantage to not have to work as much and go to school and work half time like a lot of students do to afford the very exeexpensive tuition and living expenses, so i'm glad to be in a position in a city like san francisco and when we talk to people about helping whether they are a engineering firm committed to stoit and san francisco community for many years and if you know anything about [inaudible] hill they are at the heart of a lot of infrastructure work with public utilities commission and have been very successful. they will make sure that our
8:31 am
pipeline jz water systems and sewer systems are all working and at the same time they are able to see the actual talent of the people they work with in the present and future and see the talent come through and hopefully you will be able to join public utility ue till commission and [inaudible] others who stepped up. we had people that said i want to give the money. i believe in your vision. i know and hear what shamon and [inaudible] are doing at the school board and want these kids to have every opportunity to succeed and don't want any attention just say take this and make sure the right kids get it. they all had one thing in common and that is the only thing i will be speaking to by something i'll ask of each one of our
8:32 am
scholar awardees tonight and that is real san francisco thing. you know, for me, the door of opportunity was open not by myself. i think i could have been a smart, i could have done a lot of good grades and did all that but that wouldn't have earned the confidence or investment people made. it is also the feeling i know in san francisco we have and that is the support for each other. that, when we have the opportunity door open for us, our obligation of a life time basis is keep that door open for somebody else. all of you will make something of yourselves. i feel that way, you will accomplish your goals, you will have happy families and have your own kids and responsibilities, but also the most important thing is just remember where you came from and how you got there and the
8:33 am
people helped you that you turn around and you just keep the door open and help somebody else. that is very simple lesson in life but it is so san francisco because what i try to do in running the city is i look at housing developers and look at companies that are investing millions and millions of dollars and i say okay, if we help you establish your business here, i want you to employ local people. warriors, when you build your stadium i want you to have local hire. ucsf, will wh you build a new hospital, i want you to reach out to our programs and get local people hired. tech companies, i want you to fly out with all wrour poky mon stuff, get some of those jobs for our kids and open up making sure we train our kids in the technology and jobs of the future. so, even though you see a lot of success going on,
8:34 am
there are many of us day too dai day saying, keep the door open for somebody else, support our non profits, support our school district, support our community serving associations. think about communitys always because that will always be the most important thing you could do and when you get a good education and good degree and good reputation, quite frankly that may be your goal, but it doesn't mean a lot-it means 10 times more when you apply that to building a strong community from which you came from. so, i'm about rebuilding all public housing in san francisco because i grew up in public housing and i never want public housing residents to be called public housing residents. i want them to be the citizens and residents of san francisco. that means everybody gets quality housing and we will put the entire direction of our
8:35 am
economics of our city to make sure that happens. good paying jobs, 21 st century jobs, that is what we want everybody to participate in. that is why we work hard to raise minimum wage and end discrimination squl work hard to erase the barrier jz even if people made mistakes they can't suffer their entire life from those mistakes, they need to recover. recover so we don't end in a place where people can't grow and move forward. that is why the city is so graitand took up the crazy responsibility to mayor of san francisco. who would want tobe mayor of peebals republic of san francisco? there are so many view jz so many things that have to be done but i took up the challenge because i have a lot of friends that said they would
8:36 am
help make the city great and they are doing so and there is something we can get done as a city if we work together and support each other and make sure we never think about communitys in isolation, we are people that can help each other. tell you a story and it is one i'm proud of because it has to do with my own community. in a few weeks hid ruand i will also add about 16 more scholarships. i had friends in chinatown who were part of these family associations. for years if you know chinatown and it is made up of a lot of different associations. some of these associations were created way back in the 1800's because there were a lot of
8:37 am
discrimination of chinese so had to form own groups called family association to pull the money together because no one would hire them to do work. they had to borrow money from their own people because the banks wouldn't lend money. they wouldn't let them buy property. sound familiar? didn't happen just to chinies but did happen to chineties. the family associations over many decades helped themselves. when i became the mayor 5 years ago the family association said mayor, will you bless us with your presence? for many decades the family associations gave scholarships to our kids and we are proud of that. chinese, we love education and love our kids to succeed. i said i think that is a good idea but have one condition. they said, what is that because we didn't-you are the first
8:38 am
chinese america mayor, can you come help announce the scholarships? i said i'm proud you are doing scholarships but also say as the first chinese american mayor i'm proud to do that and also proud if you open up the scholarships. they said, what do you mean. this is a time be agchinese american i can show we support all youth that need scholarships as well. if you were to open up that would be a big message to have other kids not just chinese kids be recipients of the scholarships and now we are in our 4th year where they opened up their scholarships. we have 10 non chinese coming in to be part of the overall scholarships they fund. the
8:39 am
point being, our communities have the same values, we want the same levels of success for our kids but we are part of a larger community of san francisco and can help each other out. if we just open the doors of opportunity and i'm proud that our chinese community said to me, we would be willing to open that up because now during the scholarships, the fmlies come and have dim sum after the scholarships and they are experiencing each others culture and it is amazing what you can do when you ask people, don't just think of yourselves, but think the larger community. we understand the history of the chinese community. we need to bring everybody together. i want to share that
8:40 am
with you because these are life experiences that you will all have and i just say that the stronger person will be the one that says i remember how i got to where i am and i will pay it forward and keep that door wide open for other people so other people can experience what we are experiencing about being embraced by your community. final word, it is a scholarship but also want to think-want you to think of it as a investment. you're my investment. i'm investing in you and these days that is a powerful statement. when someone says i invest in you they are looking at the ipo and you to succeed so the money they put out there can say it was really worth it. that you did what that money-what investments ought to do. you took it and grew it and made
8:41 am
everything possible that you can make out of it. sthis what an investment does. i think the highest praise is you are our cities investment so you is a lot more people that will suroun you for that success. all the more to you and to say again on behalf of the city, i thank you for your accomplishment and leadership and have a lot more people when you are throw with the education we are identifies jobs so come and work with the city or companies that work with us being in san francisco. i know i will take a look at the other wonderful cities in the country but you are always know that the warriors are in san francisco. congratulations scholars. investments and good luck to you and let us know how we can all help continue your
8:42 am
success. congratulations. [applause] >> thank you so much mr. mayor. so, at this time we will have the mayor come up and have tracy and summer come up from brown and cauldwell and ch 2 m. they will give each of the scholars a city pin for florence will share with our-we have a certificate of honor for each of our recipients and this is a opportunity for you all to take a picture. i'm going slide my way out of here. i'm sorry, i didn't get a chance to introduce myself, i'm hide rumendoza and surge on education and family source squz elected member of board of education. this is my favorite time when we do investments that really commit to the community. during a time when it is really tough out there now we have to invest in our young people . thank you mr.

9:17 am
not the sexiest subject in the world but it matters and this is a grassroots movement that hesitate before brewing for a a long time of people in the city that thinks that trees matter they matter to the environment and health to our quality of life, and people who understand that that for way two along the city of san francisco has neglected our urban forest and gone beyond neglect by isn't it true dumping responsibility on adjacent property owner whether or not they planted the tree or whether or not they want the tree or know anything about taken care of of trees and the physical responsibility to whether they're a 25 ceo or an 80-year-old social security
9:18 am
recipient that treats property owners unfairly and guarantees a deratd and dying urban forest it is long past due of this terrible, terrible system and have the opportunity to fix it for the last 6 years i've had the honoring of partnering with supervisor avalos and the friends of the urban forest to move a solution forward we've worked collaboratively with the planning department and the public works and environmental groups anticipate neighborhood groups we've convened hundreds of community meaningful we've spoken about this issue we've spoken with property owner groups we're worked with everyone who should be involved a broad based coalition enough is enough the city needs to take back the trees and the sidewalks for tree related damage and take back liability earlier this year we introduced legislation a ballot measure to
9:19 am
go to the voters and to seek relief to have the city take back the trees and actually pay for it he know that trees don't compete well, in the budget if we simply take back the trees the trees will die because this building will not adequately fund tree maintenance needs from the beginning we were clear that we needed to take back the trees and have dedicated lockbox funding to do that the initial proposal included a combination of baselines aside what the city has spent for the last ten years and a progressive parcel tax we've had a lot of communications there that issue to make sure we are sending not just the best possible measure to the voters but a measure that
9:20 am
has the best possibility of passing to fix this once and for all supervisor avalos has been working with me and thank you to him for his partnership and he creative thinking we had to continue this last week that was unclear if we'll be able to put this on the ballot and last week, we spoken more time than either of us care to admit to try to resolve this i want to thank supervisor avalos for his creative thinking for coming up with great ideas to incorporate into this measure today so colleagues before i today we've distributed amendments that will had had following will continue to meant the city take back the tree relates
9:21 am
sidewalk damage and liability and then to create a baseline in the budget of $19 million which is the total cost we've formulated with finally and the controller's office to pay for that the 34ur will provide the mayor's with an opportunity as with the transportation and housing sales tax depend on what the financial condition of the city at the end of this year to determine to move forward but we're confident this will move forward and we know that the mayor cares about trees as well sow r so this measure a great one supervisor avalos and you are in partnership and will ask you colleagues to make those amendments today and then this is on the agenda already for the thursday and friday special meeting so that i hope we'll place this on the ballot and want to thank friends of the urban forest for the unending work for 40 years for the urban
9:22 am
forest and on this measure in particular he thing andrea in my office that did enormous work over a a long time to move forward move forward to colleagues he ask for your support and now with our permission madam president i'm going to turn it over to supervisor avalos. >> okay. before we take the amendment he will recognize supervisor avalos. >> and that's a motion and so - >> so supervisor wiener has made a motion to amend seconded by supervisor avalos colleagues the amendment without objection without objection the amendment passed amazing supervisor avalos. >> thank you supervisor president london breed i might not describe trees as sexy issue that is an essential issue and
9:23 am
district lovely trees have been a big effort that the residents came together to help to develop the neighborhood to bring a sense of belonging beauty to the neighborhood and make sure that our neighborhood can be a place where people are actively involved with the landscaping looks like so the university has been a big part a many, many resident in any district that have been working closely to make sure that district 11 can grow the university it is unfortunate because district 11 it is hard to do that a lot of concrete and a lot of telephone poles more telephone poles than trees in district 11 but people understand that trees are about a sense that quality and people in any district that don't have disposable income finds is difficult to take care of trees when the city is passing on that
9:24 am
responsibility to them and trees and situations for people in district 11 that struggling to pa pay their mortgage and having to take care of the damage the tree might make can be a disagrees event so that's a solution a great solution and it is one that is really clearly helping neighbors in san francisco that are generally not given a lot of support and reliberal wanting to take care of planting new trees we'll have many trees that have been taken out because property owners don't want to take care of the trees this is been a really great experience working with
9:25 am
supervisor wiener on this measure we often don't see eye to eye but trees we do to me this is an issue that is a progressive issue the moderate issue an issue that united the board of supervisors i work hard to make sure our board can be united i know that supervisor yee is also looking at how we can insure that when this measure kicks in by july 1st of next year we'll have a program in place because we'll already set a reserve relishl program but by charter amendment for the future and doing that with a fund that supports long term make ready for ever for trees in san francisco that's a huge thing this is also an environmental issue
9:26 am
our trees are the greatest source of carbon in san francisco we can remove carbon dioxide by funding more trees that nursing or enables us with clean power to do our part in restoring climate change that is devastating the world i'm proud to be part of this effort i was concerned about moving forward another parcel tax the san francisco city college board of trustees has put a reauthorization of the parcel tax on the ballot i think that is hard for property owner voters to choose two parcel tax or have to choose between them if they only want to support one and other revenue measures it is difficult to move forward with other parcel tax to help to resolve the tree issue when
9:27 am
another one is there because the remedy measures with the revenue co-sponsored it made it possible for us to attempt to tap both one of the sources to be able to cover the program for trees we want to commend thank all my colleagues that have been working on new source of revenue with our photo tax and transfer tax increases that are coming forward i know that several of us on the board worked on those measures they enable us to have the flexibility in the budget to quality this set aside and have a stream of funding for the tree program i want to engage supervisor kim and supervisor cowen and supervisor mar for their work on revenue i think this is really important to move on trees above all thank you, jeremy in any office that has tried
9:28 am
various because of you know throwing dangerous on the wall to see what stays on the wall and this effort to actually link with new revenue sources without a new additional source to the ballot is one that really will work and one that all of san francisco will see the benefits of as we move forward. >> so thank you to jeramy colleagues before we go further i do want to i'm going to table item 22 which say was any version the tree tax measure i kind of stopped working on that with in place with supervisor wiener measure created a program that covers ongoing maintenance of trees until the distant future to me that is more i can get all of us to get behind this measure with the new source of
9:29 am
support for it and the support of set aside i'll be asking ms. johnson to table item 22 before getting a second ask that we send back to committee item 23 that is the tax utility use tax on non-renewable source of energy it is important we look at that has a potential measure for the ballot i wanted this measure to go forward but concerned about putting an additional tax on the ballot that will burden our ballot but also make it difficult for voters to distinguish but having a tax on renewable that revenue can cover the build out clean power or the planting of more trees but best to continue this item for another time motion again to tackle item 22 and send
9:30 am
23 back to committee thank you, colleagues. >> thank you supervisor avalos has made a motion to table 22 seconded by supervisor mar colleagues without objection without objection item 22 is tabled and on the motion to send item 23 back to budget and finance colleagues without objection without objection 23 back to committee and supervisor yee. >> thank you very much supervisor president london breed. >> first of all, i want to thank the friends the urban forest and all the individual that have been working on this tree issue for many years. >> it is real important issue for district 7 something that i recognized when i stepped into office we needed to do something
9:31 am
about this when i saw was tree after tree left alone and dying trees that would be taken care of by seniors with fixed income this is not a solution at one point the city took care of more trees for me want to thanks supervisor wiener and supervisor avalos for working together to come up with that solution that hopefully, all of us will supports i have two goals in mind when i jumbled into this discussion about half a year ago one was that why are we waiting a year if now to take over the trees to my colleagues know that i've introduced legislation that will go forward after the recess
9:32 am
that will basically ask the city to start taking over the trees immediately and people say where will you get the money i'll be following up with a supplemental ask for this year and for me, the second piece of this so that's sort of a stop gap we can take over now and build up the program and in time looking at the year that that is fully fund with a fully operational program the second piece for me think that supervisor avalos already mentioned he felt and many of us felt too much revenue measures that we were proposing and just wasn't fair for our citizens i mean our residents in san francisco to be actually flipping the bill for everything and one of the things i was not
9:33 am
going to support was a parcel tax i felt there are other ways to do this so i'm happy at this moment we actually found a solution we don't need to tap into a parcel tax and actually support fewer revenue measures than i want to thank both supervisor wiener and supervisor avalos for working this out it was very difficult i know especially only a few days to make the final decisions and i will be supportive of this amendment. >> thank you supervisor yee and supervisor mar. >> thank you. i'm pleased madam president and colleagues that we had this week to try to work out this issue to be hopefully unanimous in support of vance san francisco a city covered in healthy trees with
9:34 am
the urban forestry council all the dpw oovrts and others and everyone from the neighborhoods that has been writing about this issue i'm pleased we hopefully have a anonymous way to move forward as tom from livable city said at different committees that trees under streets can help to raise your level of happiness and equitable in other neighborhoods and the city is expanding the companion on a citywide level but trees increase people's health by slowing amp up to seven years trees are an economic benefit to $1 involved from trees give 7 to
9:35 am
$8 of benefits assuming their strong ways to plant and maintain and grow them as well i know that has we move livable city trees help to pull carbon out of the air and san francisco as a city we're a liveable city my appreciation to supervisor wiener and supervisor avalos and supervisor yee and others for thinking about the common interests of all the neighborhoods i think that friends of the urban forest have been at that over a year several years actually and pleased this is moving forward i would have appreciated the progressive parcel tax i'm looking forward to this commitment made by this probation officer body we find the funding for a thirty year problem our city has not addressed until in hits the
9:36 am
ballot in november i want to say that would not have come forward without the activists and the friends of the urban forest keeping the light shining on how we are united and my hope in november to pass this measure and regrow our canopy and be a liveable city thanks to supervisor wiener and supervisor avalos and all of us for moving forward. >> supervisor farrell. >> thank you supervisor president london breed i want to say thank you to supervisor wiener and supervisor avalos and supervisor yee particularly supervisor wiener and supervisor avalos so for in their advocacy and their workload i want to thank dan friends of the urban forest i know that supervisor wiener has been working with their hard work that is relent less this is a great tribute i'm excited. >> thank you supervisor farrell supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president this issue has been connecting
9:37 am
around since milton marks was the head of - i want to say that number one i am very pleased given the number taxed and the 9 point of billion dollars budget a with all due respect to the mayor and members of this body the city should not have reliberated the trees that were reliberated a few years ago this is the right thing to do to put it in the lockbox and identify the tax that come from the wealthiest players in our society and not homeowners that are stressed that week the advocacy and the discussion has resulted in something that will solve this problem in the
9:38 am
fairest way. >> thank you supervisor peskin supervisor campos. >> be very brief and also want to say thank supervisor wiener and supervisor avalos i think that there has an agreement throughout this discussion on the part of board of supervisors that the city should never have gotten to this point and not have reliberated our responsibility and put it on property owners the question for the last few days what is the best answer and i'm glad that it has been at least an agreement that resolves the issues and especially want to thank all my constituents for district 9 that have taken the time to write to me and my staff about the importance of this issue and i know there are people from
9:39 am
ever every supervisorial district and the board is responding i'll be happy to support this. >> commissioner wu supervisor campos supervisor kim. >> thank you supervisor president london breed i'm happy we're moving forward a measure that didn't tax the residents i think the city should take back the responsibility for maintaining the street trees they're important part of our canopy and a healthy city any reluctance affordability so one of the top issues that taxing our hoermentz many are feeling they've left even if they own their homes that is pitting the burden on it is undue burdensome uniform happy we're moving forward with a set aside assuming new revenue that comes
9:40 am
to the city and maintenance the trees and the city has responsibility for many of any colleagues talked about with why they're important but i think that is important to note that maintaining the street trees has been confusing for so many of the homeowners and that to no fault of their home don't do the right way because of ways going about it and incredibly expenditure i think this is the predicament way for us to move forward it show and absolutely be. >> priority and come out of our general fund dollars i'm happy to see the charter amendment dancing takes back the ownership and recognize supervisor yee who since i've introduced the ultimate traffic real estate transfer tax trying to figure out how to allocate the dollars for street trees maintenance and working alongside with my office to come up with language to move along
9:41 am
with our city college special fined funds will be a funded by the real estate transfer tax so insure that new revenues will come in and be able to spend down for maintenance i understand that he is going to be moving forward with the way to fund street trees maintenance today before this ballot measure is in effect i'll assume it passes i want to thank the board for working together to bring 24 forward there is a be tremendous outcome of revenue but proud we're moving forward with the progressive way that we are asking those with the most to fund the services here in the city we need to see moving forward and our homeowners will not be burdened with homeownership's tax but homeowners are willing to
9:42 am
contribute to the general fund we want to participate in the progress and the friends of urban forest thank you e thank you for all your hard work and i appreciate the work to bring nor trees into the tenderloin neighborhood i cannot tell how important to have a canopy with the bodecker park and hopefully to bring more of this into the district i represent thank you. >> thank you, supervisor kim supervisor wiener. >> thank you madam president first of all, well, i thank friends of urban forest earlier i neglected to specifically thank dan the executive director that did an extraordinary job getting the trees planting and advocating for our trees so thank you, dan so colleagues or madam president 22 and 23 have been tabled and
